The Victoria & Albert Museum is the world's largest museum of decorative arts and design housing a permanent collection of over 4.5 million objects. Named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, it was founded in 1852 and now contains 145 galleries covering 5,000 years of art.
This circular opening down a staircase I thought was an interesting feature, especially how when you looked through it you saw a circular window and railings.
The main facade of the museum was built between 1899-1909 the foundation stone of which was laid down by Queen Victoria in what would be her last major public ceremony. The design covers various styles including Gothic, Romanesque and classical, behind this facade the museum is a mixture of both Edwardian and Victorian designs dating back to 1857. The museum is Grade l Listed.
